Remove top grille (2 screws), undo control panel (1 screw). Tilt down control panel, switches are on the left. There are actually three switches that are involved with the door, two horizontally mounted, one vertically mounted. This would be an EASY REPAIR, but it took me a while to figure out which of the three switches was bad, and also took a while to figure out that there is a plastic rod that inserts through the hole in the switch body. Once i figured this out went like a breeze. Lower horizontal switch was the bad one, but since the kit came with two switches i went ahead and replaced the upper horizontal one as well. IT appears that the horizontal switches are probably more likely to fail than the vertical switch based on the position of the switch and force angles. Works great now!

The repair went well...I am so glad that I read this info before buying a new microwave....it saved me lots of money. I did have a repair man come and look at it and he told me to buy a new one but it cost alot of money when it wasn't necessary. I did the repair and I was very proud of myself.
Three men watched a woman fix this and it was no problem...they were impressed also....

no heat

I looked up the #1 reason for no heat for my microwave on the site , and using my model number found that 92% of the time it was the Black Sleeve Diode. Ordered the $15 part, and installed it within 30 minutes. Most of the time was used for removing the built in microwave and removing the cover. Replaced the diode by finding it on the diagram that I printed from this site (free). Very relieved that we don't need to have our custom cabinetry re-sized to accommodate a new microwave. Thank you!

Problem would come and go. Found service schematic inside unit. Perform all the suggested tests. One possible solution was the primary interlock switch shown on the schematic and a check found the switch stuck. It would free up some times but would stick again in the open position. Ordered switch which was a simple plug in unit.

1. Removed cabinet screws (10-15?). 2. Removed cabinet. 3. Removed top interlock switch which actually was not defective. The press clip connection appeared as if it had been arcing for quite some time and the corrosion created resistance sufficient to prevent the current from getting through the switch. 4. Replaced switch anyway but broke plastic retaining clip despite every effort not to do so. Reset broken clip with super glue. 5. Reassembled cabinet and appliance is in good working condition.

Our maytag microwaive sounded like a thrashing machine when running!

  • Customer: William from East Wenatchee, WA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

Over a period of a year or so, our over the stove microwaive oven started sounding like a thrashing machine every time we turned it on and got progressivly worse. The repair service wanted nearly half the cost of the appliance to just come out to take a look. I removed the oven from the wall cabinet, removed the cover and discovered that the cooling fan blade had come loose from the motor shaft and was hitting the casing. I ordered the fan motor assembly from you folks, replaced the faulty fan, and the problem was resolved at about one half of the cost of a service call.

Small plastic Wheel kept falling off turntable on microwave.

I tried to fix the wheel but the plastic hub had worn too small. After messing with it for a month, I ordered the support ring with 3 wheels from this site. this site said it would fit many brands of microwaves. I was glad I ordered it. It was very affordable and is better than the original. The replacement part is made with heavier duty material than the original and it works perfect. I picked up the microwave plate and grabbed the old one and threw it in the recycle bin and put the new turntable support under the plate, put the plate back on top and closed the door!! Works perfect! Even a novice can do this repair!!

I thought that if I went one more time to visit my son, and the microwave tray was still gone (due to their having broken it), I would just order the part MYSELF!! So, that is what I had to do. They have been without this for at least 3-4 months........ Well, it was sitting at my door in less than 48 hours after I ordered it! Easy, easy, easy..........thank you!
